Float over the hot air balloon over the Alps to Italy! The journey leads past Großglockner, Großvenediger, the Zillertal Alps and the Dolomites to the Po Valley just before Venice. In contrast to the balloon rides in the Alps, which are already considered an absolute experience, a balloon ride over the entire Alpine arc to Italy is the ultimate feeling of excitement. An unbelievable view of the peaks of the Alps and Dolomites as well as a distant view mostly as far as the Adriatic Sea. As part of the "crew" you will experience this special event more intensely than any of the many spectators who come to the starts.

  • Hot air balloon ride
  • approx. 3-4 hours up in the air

Alpine crossings need stable weather and the right wind condition, i.e. strong northerly winds of at least 80 km/h in 5000 meters of elevation. They occur after a cold front, under increasing influence of high pressure and mostly cloudless sky.


The Alps Crossing takes 2 days.


Meeting point is depending on wind conditions usually at 8 am in Zell am See or in St. Johann in Tyrol.

Price information:

The price is valid per person.

Group size:

4-10 persons can ride together, in case there are more passengers there will be more balloons. If you are a single rider you can join a group.


are welcome to watch starting

Equipment / clothing:

Seasonal clothing is required. Please note that there are also lower temperatures at higher altitudes. So please just put on as if it were about 15-20 degrees Celsius less. So warm winter clothing, especially good, waterproof, warm shoes.


Crossing the Alps in a Hot Air Balloon is only possible in short notice, so you need to have great flexibility in time.


Crossing the Alps requires very special wind conditions and is only possible approx. 2 to 4 times a year, in the months of November to February. In the warm season it is not possible to plan a trip to the Alps due to thermals.


You will be informed 2-3 days prior if or when the Alpine Crossing can take place. If you book a ticket or a voucher and the ride needs to be rescheduled you will be called again and again until you have time.
